3/1     Can someone explain to me why Groupon is a tech company?
        \_ It's similar to how Amazon and eBay are tech companies.
           \_ Amazon and eBay are *NOW* tech companies, they didn't
              start that way. Groupon started off as a marketing
              company, and their "technology" isn't getting any better
              than a bigger and bigger opt-in email spam system.

html#vid=%2029378243&browseC arouselUI=hide&autoPlay=true A New Jersey woman says she was fired from her job after her manager told her to "tape her breasts" down, and now has filed suit against the company claiming religious and sexual discrimination. Former data entry worker Lauren Odes said that after two days with Native Intimates, a midtown Manhattan wholesale lingerie company, a supervisor told her the store owners were not happy with her outfit, suggesting it was too "distracting." "When I first started working there, I asked what the dress code was, and I was just told to look around and see what everyone else was wearing," Odes said in a press conference Monday. The dress was very casual athletic wear to business attire." Odes said the company owners are Orthodox Jews who were offended by her attire. At a news conference announcing the suit, she said that at first she compromised, saying she'd wear a gray T-shirt and black jeggings with rain boots to work, but that wasn't enough. "She put the bathrobe on me and tied the belt and I returned to my desk wearing it." Her supervisor then gave her the option of to go out and buy a sweater that "went to her ankles" instead of wearing the bathrobe, she said. After being ridiculed and made fun of by co-workers, Odes said, she obliged. I'd prefer to go out and buy a sweater rather than sit there in the bathrobe feeling humiliated," Odes said. But while she was out shopping for the sweater, the 29-year-old got a phone call saying she'd been terminated, she said. Now, attorney Gloria Allred has filed suit against Native Intimates with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. "The treatment was discriminatory, profoundly humiliating and unlawful," Allred said. This isn't the first time Allred has represented a client for allegedly being fired for what she was wearing. Two years ago, she represented Debrahlee Lorenzana, a Queens, NY, woman who sued former bosses Citibank for banning her "sexy outfits and heels." Odes, who said she is also Jewish, said no employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on employees. "I do not feel an employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on me when I'm working in a business that's not a synagogue, but sells things with hearts on the female genitals and boy shorts for women that say hot in the buttocks area," she said. James 1 day 7 hours ago Marcus, I agree, however, if they wanted a certain dress, then they need a dress code. While I am not a sue happy person and generally think that ambulance chasers should be shot on sight, I think she has a real beef here. This case will come down to he said, she said unless they can get current employees to prove her statements it will be a hard one to prove. Most likely, the company will settle without admitting they did wrong and that will be the end of it and Allred will draw yet another fat check.

Jo o 1 day 8 hours ago If all what she is saying is true, she was done wrong. However, it would be good to see exactly what she wore and how she looked in order to comment and/or state an opinion.
